JOHOR BAHRU, Dec 9 2017 : Senai assemblywoman Wong Shu Qi today turned up at the Johor Police Contingent headquarters to give her statement over the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) classified documents leaked online.

Wong arrived at the police headquarters at 4.15 pm, accompanied by DAP Legal Bureau chief Gobind Singh Deo, who is also Puchong MP.

Speaking to reporters after giving her statement to the investigating officer from Bukit Aman, Wong said she was being investigated under Section 203A of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998.

Meanwhile, Gobind said police had asked the assemblywoman to assist in the investigation according to Section 112 of the Criminal Procedure Code and that the statement-giving process lasted about 40 minutes.

“We don’t want this to be a precedent case because Wong was just discharging her duties as an assemblywoman during a debate in the State Assembly sitting, and for me, what uttered by a member of the State Assembly are protected under the Federal Constitution,” he said.

Gobind said he would write to the MACC and the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun to learn about the matter mentioned by Wong during the debate as it had become a general knowledge and a public issue.

On Nov 27, Wong when debating the State Budget 2018, was asked to leave the sitting after she refused to withdraw her remarks questioning the authenticity of MACC documents uploaded online.

The documents allegedly implicated that Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin was involved in a property scandal, which also involved a former assemblyman in the state.
